None of this legislation was going to pass into law. It just wasn't supposed to go down in flames in the democrat controlled senate. This was supposed to be laid at the feet of house republicans. Oops.

Really? How many times have the repubs used it versus the dems?

Communism like what palin did in Alaska? Perhaps you should look up the meaning instead of just flinging it around.

Obamas ideas are radical and controversial. Most of those fillibusters totally acceptable minority tactics. Don't get pissy over it. To pass controversial measures you need 60 votes. Thats how its been when dems were the minority and thats how it is now.

Deal with it and get all of your dems to vote together. Had they done that they would have won.

Even if all dems voted yes it still wouldn't have broke the filibuster.

Yeah, the tradeoff for a Red State Democrat was pretty untenable...

almost nothing useful would've been accomplished other than Blue State feelgoodism. What the left fails to realize though is that same token feelgood "accomplishment" would be seen more more like a Scarlet Letter in Red gun-rights states.

Not sure why they think anyone from one of those states would stick their neck out for something that does little, but costs a lot (politically)

Same with amnesty. Though this bill was tanked by Democrats themselves, Obama yesterday goes on a rant against the NRA. Very typical.

Default Newtown Votes for Armed Guards in Elementary Schools

But I thought they were against guns.

http://news.yahoo.com/newtown-votes-...152326609.html

As the nation continues to confront the concept of "good guys with guns" in schools, armed guards are coming in force to Newtown, Connecticut. Late Thursday the Newtown Board of Education voted to request the presence of two kinds of guards inside the town's elementary schools. The vote, for now, only represents a request it still needs to clear budget and logistical boundaries since the guards would come from the town's police resources as opposed to the school board itself. But the plan "would put two eyes and ears -- one armed, one unarmed -- at each Newtown school," reports Bronxville Patch's Davis Dunavin. The guards, officially called school resource officers (SROs), were already a fixture at all Newtown schools in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, but until this vote they were budgeted only to be a presence at middle and high Schools, according to NBC Connecticut. cont...

Good deal. Maybe the Dems should focus on pressure cookers now. Tens of millions of them in unregulated hands.

What about backpacks? Think of all the no good people killing things people hide in backpacks. Not to mention drugs. I think we should make a law saying all backpacks have to be see through. If it saves even 1/2 of a life its worth it.

No, my right to freedom trumps your right to safety. Rather, I'm for getting rid of all anti-terrorism laws, because let's face it, only criminals break the laws anyhow.

Who has ever said we don't need laws to punish and help catch criminals and terrorists?

Alcohol related deaths in the US, exceed gun related deaths.
